With the recognition that carbohydrates are tough molecules to study, the author of the article how the developments of enabling technologies have reached a stage where their applications is democratizing and broadening their utilization in biology and biotechnology.
Among others, the work of Gordan Lauc is cited as an illustration of how linking glycan data to phenotyping, genetic and biochemical data gathered on more than 30,000 people illustrate how the glycome is evolving with age or lifestyle.
